War Machine Arrested Outside Las Vegas Gay Club

Just days after his release from the upcoming Bellator Fighting Championships, former UFC welterweight War Machine (Jon Koppenhaver) has been arrested in Las Vegas on charges of misdemeanor battery.
The arrest came after an alleged scuffle inside Krave Nightclub & Lounge in the Miracle Mile Shops of the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
Fiveouncesofpain.com was the first to report the incident.
Jay Rivera, a representative with the Public Information Office of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, confirmed War Machine's arrest with Fiveouncesofpain.com and said "The Ultimate Fighter 6" cast member was taken into custody at approximately 4 a.m. local time on the morning of Saturday, Feb. 8.
According to a report from TMZ.com, security escorted War Machine out of Krave after an incident inside. War Machine then allegedly threw several punches at the security staff. He was then restrained and held under citizen's arrest until the Las Vegas police officers arrived on scene.
The incident is not War Machine's first brush with the legal system.
In February 2008 War Machine received three years probation and was ordered to pay $2,300 in restitution to victim Darren Zatkow after pleading guilty to felony assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury.
The charges stemmed from a September 2007 incident in which War Machine punched and choked Zatkow outside of San Diego's Undisputed fight club.
Following the February 2008 decision, Deputy District Attorney David Williams III, the prosecutor in War Machine's case, told San Diego's 10news.com that the probation was "the defendant's last chance" and noted that a future offense would likely result in prison time for War Machine.
